I started with the pink paper. I have carefully been sectioning out that one 12x12 sheet and using it sparingly, but this particular Tilda seemed like a natural to have a lovely pink dress in that paper. And I could see it right away for the tag too.
I usually make the cards, clear some things away and then post the card a day or even a few days later, sitting at my computer and by that time I've forgotten paper and stamp names usually. Let's just say the bird and the flourish on the tag are more than likely from clear Inkadinkado sets, I know one is birds and one is Christmas. The paper is some kind of Basic Grey. (don't you love these specifics?)
I distressed the tag by crumpling it up, sponging the edges with Ranger distress ink in tattered rose to soften the pink and help it coordinate better with the Basic Grey DP. I sponged the circle of creamy caramel behind Tilda with the same ink.
Tilda is paper pieced and watercolored with a combination of reinkers and watercolor crayons. The sponsor of the Midnight Madness sketch challenge said we could use artistic license with the sketch so it kinda sorta looks like it. . . maybe. I have the tag! And I have stitching around the edge of the tag on one side and an object in the lower left corner. Anyway, I thought the sketch was an interesting one., my first time playing in that challenge. Thanks for looking.
